Just like the mythical phoenix, some people gain the power to rise after everything has fallen to ashes. But what is it about adversity that gives people the ability to overcome while others flounder? Clinical psychologist Dr. Maria Sirois and author Mark Matousek (Sex, Death, Enlightenment: A True Story) will answer that and other burning questions in When You're Falling, Rise: The Art & Science of Resilience. After decades of intense research, Sirois and Matousek will share interesting finds from their interviews with great artists, clinical practices and personal memoirs. Uncover the mysterious and scientic forces behind personal evolution when Sirois and Matousek closely examine the topic at The New York Society for Ethical Culture.
